the strength of Indian political writers and their language is best displayed in this book by Kshemendra. The satire backdrops at 10th century Kashmir.  It is an English translation of thousand-year-old Sanskrit satirical novel Samaya Matrika. The writer expertly designs the book through eight chapters with picturesque social satire. The novel is one of those rare books which reflects on non-so popular literary pieces from the history.
